Calshot Activities Centre

First aid courses

For instructors and others working in the Outdoors Industry, Calshot is the ideal venue for First Aid training. Our trainers are also coaches at the highest level in a range of outdoor activities. Using that experience they will ensure that your training is relevant and focussed on practical strategies to use in an emergency.

ITC First Aid Courses

Immediate Temporary Care courses have an unrivalled reputation amongst outdoor activity instructors. ITC courses are practical and hands on.
